New Papers from Hambly!

We just received a new shipment of screenprinted papers and overlays from Hambly. I have always been a huge fan of their papers, and this release features some really fun designs from peacock feathers to cupcakes to doilies. These 12x12s are so great for so many different projects beyond scrapbooking.

Our Salem store came up with this cute idea for a cupcake box. Using one of our everyday cube-shaped gift boxes, they cut out a window and placed an overlay (basically a clear sheet of acetate that has these cupcakes printed on it) over the opening. Really simple, but such a great idea! A couple of little added embellishments on the top make a perfect little package and gift for any birthday boy or girl. PLUS...the papers actually even smell like vanilla!

I saw another creative use for the overlays on Hambly's blog. They basically modified a plain Ikea lamp to transform it into a really striking piece of room decor. See the full details and how to on thier blog at:

What kinds of projects have you come up with using overlays? We'd love to see some more ideas! Happy Crafting! -Amanda
